Yeah, keep your eyes on the road, your hand upon the wheel

3. Dmitri Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 (???)


Keeping Score - Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
Dmitri Shostakovich
30 Outubro 2009


Shostakovich may have secreted a subversive cipher beneath the surface of his life-saving Symphony No. 5.. This is all the more shocking since another bad review from Stalin’s totalitarian forces could have meant a sentence to the Gulag or worse.

After his opera Lady Macbeth was publically condemned as immoral by Pravda, the Soviet newspaper, Shostakovich knew he had only one chance to redeem himself. When he penned this fifth symphony, the composer was literally writing for his life. The risk was so high that Shostakovich slept on the stairs outside his apartment so the secret police would not wake his family when they came from him, as he was sure they would.

This Keeping Score program, investigates the arresting symphony that would either redeem Shostakovich or doom him. Did he dare hide a kernel of musical criticism in what appears to be a paean to the Motherland?

5. Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Dedicated to Syd Barrett, the first guitarist of the band, later replaced by David Gilmour.
Barrett, a founding member of the band "Pink Floyd" and one of the most legendary rock stars to develop a mental illness - most likely schizophrenia, triggered, it is said, by significant drug use as well as the stress and pressure of his career.

6. Jimmie Rodgers-Gambling bar room blues

I had never listened to Jimmy Rodgers before, but I have seen Aaron Rodgers play.

INDUCTED : 1961
JIMMIE RODGERS

James Charles Rodgers, known professionally as the “Singing Brakeman” and “America’s Blue Yodeler,” was the first performer inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

BIRTH: SEPTEMBER 8, 1897 - DEATH: MAY 26, 1933
BIRTHPLACE: MERIDIAN, MISSISSIPPI

He was honored as the Father of Country Music, “the man who started it all.” From many diverse elements—the traditional melodies and folk music of his southern upbringing, early jazz, stage show yodeling, the work chants of railroad section crews and, most importantly, African-American blues—Rodgers evolved a lasting musical style which made him immensely popular in his own time and a major influence on generations of country artists.
